We often avoid B&Bs as we like a bit of anonymity and privacy and generally enjoy the process of finding our way around but after getting a personal referral from friends then reading the reviews online we decided to give Hillsfield House a try. Brilliant decision. Hillsfield House’s two charming rental units are in a separate building from the main house and Jo and Steve are exceptional hosts who provide a wonderful balance between allowing complete privacy and comfort in your own space while also being available pretty much anytime you need them to help make your trip special. After emailing Jo that I was trying to arrange some appointments with local winemakers, she offered me wine maps and local insiders’ insights on the options and even helped me gain an appointment with a wonderful local winemaker that I’d had trouble contacting. While there she also helped me negotiate a challenge with the car rental company. And one night when we decided a bottle of wine and a cozy simple dinner in our room was what we wanted, they even heated up the smorgasbord of take-away we had gathered that day. It’s hard to describe Jo’s warmth and charm without smiling. But there are only two units available so don’t procrastinate. Hillsfield House is the place to stay in Marlborough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- After months of building work, the renovations have finally finished and as of 1st January 2017, our beautiful Courtyard Cottage will be open once again to welcome new friends and make lasting memories. Thank you for your patience, everyone. The Courtyard Cottage is a peaceful, rural, self-contained hideaway, aptly named as it is found nestled in a pavilion, separate to that of your hosts, with a private entrance all of its own so you can make yourselves at home and come and go as you please. Tastefully and elegantly furnished, The Courtyard Cottage boasts a cosy lounge and dining area on the ground floor, along with a country-styled kitchenette, overlooking a sheltered garden filled with roses and lavender. Upstairs, a romantic master bedroom awaits you with a four poster bed, quality brocade bed linen and its own bathroom, stocked with beautiful hand-made soaps and bath toiletries, by Jeymar Soap & Body. Allow yourselves to indulge and be pampered, and awaken each morning to a continental breakfast served in your room at a time of your choosing, to suit your relaxation or travel plans. Alternatively, if preferred, we can bring you a basket of breakfast goodies the night before, to be enjoyed in the morning, at your leisure. During your stay, if the idea of gently cruising around Renwick's gorgeous boutique cellar doors takes your fancy, where you can take your time to delight in seasonal fare and some of the tastiest wine you could ever hope to try, we would love to make it happen for you. Here, you will find yourselves right in the heart of Marlborough's wine region and so our package also includes a complimentary bike tour with Wine Tours by Bike where you will have over a dozen or more cellar doors and restaurants to choose from, all within easy cycling distance away, via flat roads and bike paths and we promise you don't need to be super fit or confident on a bike to reach them. We very much look forward to seeing you. Steve and Jo ... more less
